The Summer 2021 upgrade brings a new Turnitin assignment integration method (Turnitin LTI) to Minerva. Turnitin LTI will be used for the 21/22 academic year and onwards. This guide is about the new Turnitin LTI method. If you are looking for information about the old method, usually found in 20/21 modules, please see our separate guidance.
Turnitin's Feedback Studio is a tool for marking electronically. With Feedback Studio staff can annotate directly onto the document using text, add Bubble and QuickMark comments, leave typed or audio general feedback, and grade using a Rubric or Grading Form.
